Rod Run

Friday, August 17th, 2018

A&WJason and Lori Kelland from the A&W are again hosting the Friday night Rod Run on August 17th (the night before the Show & Shine) from their restaurant at the Husky Station just north of Ladysmith.

Participants are invited to start showing up at 4:00 pm to get a spot and enjoy some great “timely” entertainment as well as the famous Ladysmith A&W burgers, root beer, fries and fantastic service!

The Rod Run will leave the A&W at 7:00 pm and be escorted into Ladysmith where they travel through the roundabout and along First Avenue. The run goes to Davis Road, across the highway, down to Saltair, then back to the A&W for final party and wrap up.

There are prizes and great stories to swap!
